the first anniversary of president obama's election. senior white house correspondent major garrett begins america's election headquarters coverage. >> president obama talked education in madison, wisconsin, but said nothing about election results that propelled republicans to victory in governors' races in new jersey and virginia. he also said nothing about the democratic victory and the special house election in upstate new york, but it was that triumph in new york's 23rd congressional district that senior advisor david axelrod seized upon in an interview with fox. >> the new york 23 race was the one race that was really a microcosm of the national debate. the other races in jersey, and in virginia were really state races, very much focused on state issues, and we think it sends a message to other democrats that when we stick together and we fight for the right things, we're going to do well. >> the white house, the republican national chairman and exit polls all agree. the results tuesday were not a referendum on president obama, but independent or young voters did not show up or voted

obama huddled with australian prime minister kevin rudd but took no questions on the new afghanistan and pakistan strategy he will announce tomorrow. at a white house meeting last night, the president issued orders to send upwards of 30,000 additional forces to afghanistan, nearly the amount urgently requested three months ago by general stanley mcchrystal. mr. obama's hand-picked commander in afghanistan. >> clearly general mcchrystal is getting most of what he wants, and therefore, it has to be seen, generally speaking, as a victory for his position. >> and a defeat for vice president biden who argued against sending more combat troops. with 68,000 u.s. fore forces there now, the white house says the additional forces costing roughly $30 billion a year will concentrate on training, not confronting al qaeda or the taliban. >> we are there to partner with the afghans, to train the afghan national security forces, the army and the poe and the poe popo police. that sour main mission. one white house correspondent calls it inept. >> our strategies should not rely upon an accelerated tra
muslims. what general casey is saying we can't demonize muslims. that's what president obama implied last week as well. >> we don't know all the answers yet. i would caution against jumping to conclusions until we have all the facts. bill: talking points does not disagree with the president. we are not jumping to any conclusions at all. but now ayeive action must be taken to find out what was known about hasan and who knew it the guy doesn't snap. he was indoctrinated into muslim if a that the thattism and people knew it. political correctness can get people killed. i believe that's part of the for the hood massacre story. hasan was a weird guy. he said inappropriate things. did he inappropriate things. yet he continued to serve as a major in the army largely because i believe is he a muslim. by the way, hasan is awake right now and able to talk. he remains in stable condition at the brook army medical center in san antonio, texas. that's the memo, now for the top story. let's bring in brian ross from his studio in new york city. on "world news tonight" you report that this guy, hasan --
someone paid for it. >>> hey there, thanks for joining us. this is hln. president obama is on his way to china right now, the third stop of his tour in asia. earlier today he covered ground covering ground with a new negotiation agreement with russia. they're looking to replace the nuclear treaty that expires next month. president obama said things look good. >> in our first meeting when i traveled to moscow, we arrived at an understanding that it made sense for our two countries to begin reducing further our nuclear stockpiles. our negotiators made progress over the last several months. our goal continues to be to complete the negotiations and to be able to sign a deal before the end of the year. and i'm confident that if we work hard and with a sense of urgency about it, we should be able to get that done. >> president obama and the russian leader also talked about iran. president obama said time is running out for tehran to do something about its nuclear program. u.s. and russia will keep pushing iran and there are other options if that fails, but he didn't offer any details. >>> p
president obama time to decide if he'll send additional troops to afghanistan. white house said all along they won't make a decision on the troop levels here until this afghan election has been resolved. by all appearances now it will be president karzai. there is the issue of legitimacy. the short one, it gives a new government for the u.s. and other international partners to work with. this is part of the basis of adding troops is there must be a credible, viable partner in afghanistan. everything that has happened with this election process has cast doubt whether or not hamid karzai is that viable credible partner. the corruption is so wide and widespread across all of the government here. there is a real concern that going forward this election may just embolden hamid karzai and prevent him from firing the officials that the u.s. would like to see fired. shannon? >> shannon: now reporting live for us from afghanistan. thank you very much for the update, connor. so what implications will abdullah's withdrawal have for the u.s.? caroline shively standing by with the look at that angle.
, war news. president obama will announce his decision on afghanistan in a primetime speech next week. and he's expected to give general mcchrystal 35,000 more troops, slightly less than the 40,000 the general asked for. the decision will perhaps quiet charges from dick cheney and those on his side that he's dithering on afghanistan. but now the president will have to confront the liberal wing of his own party, who see this as nothing short of an escalation of war, even a new war. so can president obama sell his troop commitment to leading democrats? can he fight a war mainly dependent on republican voters? and how will it sell to an increasingly skeptical american public? >>> plus, you're not going to like this picture. president obama may have republicans on his side when it comes to afghanistan, but his decision to try 9/11 mastermind khalid shaikh mohammed up in new york federal court has given them another reason for attack. and now an attorney for one of ksm's co-defendants says all five detainees plan to plea not guilty and act as their own lawyers in court so that they can, qu
between elements of the business community willing to support the direction obama is going and the fact is virtually uniform opposition even among republicans in congress while that is occurring? >> 60 votes in the senate, the margins in the house -- let's talk as pollsters. here's what is important -- when you ask people was the stimulus a good idea or bad idea, it was $787 billion. there were some republican ideas that were good ideas and would do more to create jobs that were ignored. in late march, they bought general motors and chrysler. what happened is that back to back in a three day time frame, people said another trillion dollars and for a lot of americans, they said what? the american government owns general motors and chrysler? governments don't own big companies in america. what ruptured? what ruptured is the concern that there is way too much in spending and to be fair, it's not the president's fault. but when you say -- and the combined the billions of dollars, there is one huge massive spending and as a stimulus package. . >> what happens is the republican p

.com gives us a one-year analysis of the oa administration. >> the idea that president obama and his team were able to somehow transform the map and transform the political geography of this country or the political demography of this country, that just doesn't look to be the case. they did redraw the map in 2008. it was an he norly impressive victory. but that doesn't mean that they have somehow fundamentally altered the landscape in permanent ways. >> and job grisham is here with a new book, a collection of short stories. >> it is more about people. more about the small town people. many of whom are struggling. many of whom have had a lot of miss erie, a lot of hope. it's about small town lawyers and the crazy things they do out of desperation. all stuff i saw firsthand many years ago. >> rose: mohamed elbaradei, john harris, john grisham next. >> funding for charlie rose has been provided by the k08ing -- following: captioning sponsored by rose communications from our studios in new york city, this is charlie rose. >> rose: mohamed elbaradei is here. after 12 years as directer general
house reaction is more of the same. >> the u.s. government in both the bush and the obama administration has been saying for over 7 years now that the clock is ticking, and time is running out, and the clock keeps ticking and iran keeps making progress. >> the iaea is demanding iran stop enriching uranium and shut down the qom enrichment facility it kept secret for 2 years but the iranian representative in vienna says this demand carries no more weight than the u.n. security resolutions that came before. >> it will not stop iran and the iranian people, a great nation of iran, and deprive them from technology. >> in spite of iran's continued defiance, the u.s. says pressure and censure is not the only approach it will take. >> we also remain willing to engage iran to work toward a diplomatic solution to the nuclear dilemma it has created for itself. if only iran would choose such a course. >> the groundwork for today's resolution was laid when outgoing agency chief ba. di who had long giving iran the benefit of the doubt, suddenly seemed to reach the end of his patience. >> we have insist

[laughter] >> he was pardoning the thanksgiving turkey. >> you are hereby pardoned. >> but there was serious movement from the white house on climate change. president obama will go to copenhagen for the climate change summit. it is a decision that the americans hope will lend momentum to the negotiations to limit greenhouse emissions. they hope the trip will help america's image. they hope that obama's america will be a central player in the treaty. it does not seem likely the treaty will emerge from copenhagen. obama said he did want a firm political agreement from copenhagen could take the world towards a climate change treaty next year. >> we have just two weeks before the beginning of copenhagen. it is essential that all countries to what is necessary to reach a strong operational agreement that will confro
one statement to say. i know it is not hard for obama to want to kill other muslims because i'm not sure he is a christian. i did not say we need to send more troops to afghanistan because the pakistanis are stepping up and with both of us working together, i think we can come to a conclusion over there. then we will not have to worry about anymore terror attacks. thank you. host: thank you and thanks to all of you for your calls and comments. of course, we will have the prime minister from india here at the white house for a news conference this morning and the state dinner tonight, 6:00 on the west coast. tomorrow morning at 7:00 a.m. here on the washington -- on the "washington journal" we can continue the conversation. enjoy the rest of your day. . . >> we will take you live to the white house for the joint news conference with president obama and the indian prime minister. later, a look at the global food shortage. >> thanksgiving day, at 10:00 eastern bill clinton is on hand to present steven spielberg with an award. from the jfk library and museum, nick burns on terrori

a warehouse to house the gitmo detine knees. president obama promised to close the place for next year. julie kirtz has the latest from washington. >> although no decision has been announced, an obama administration official tells us a near empty prison is an option for detain tees from guantanamo bay. an idea backed by the governor wood would allow the federal bure reof prisons to buy the prison and turn it into a supermax facility. the prison is in a small town called thompson village, 150 miles west of chicago. local proponents of the idea say it will bring 3,000 much-needed jobs to the area. but there is plenty of opposition for those who say it's horrible way to help the local economy and make the area a terror target. >> i can't imagine the people of illinois would like to have the prisoners encars rated in the state. there may be some local officials who support it but i expect it will be a huge issue in illinois, probably in the u.s. senate race up there next year. >> a huge issue is decision by the obama administration to bring khalid sheikh mohammed and the alleged 9/11 mastermind a
think that this is a metaphor. we have not had president obama with the kinds of swings in the approval that bill clinton did. . . . >> you have to look at both of the obamas. you have to look at the polling. i do an opinion poll with a democrat, what how we describe barack obama with these numbers. we did the 14 attributes, and he's put these between the personal ratings, and things -- these are things that have to do with his job. he averaged a 61% rating. although those ratings have slipped, he had really declined in the job rating. this is a country that, given the problems, they wanted the president to be successful. i think these are exacerbated by the economic tension. we are thinking, one year from now, if the economy is not better, who do you blame? bush and the republicans or obama and the democrats. i like the idea, if this is not better, who do you blame? 24 points more said that this was tied. they said, these are your ideas. i think that we will be turning into -- we will have a very good 2010, but just like 1982 and 1994, this does not mean very much for 2012. my other qu
the minority community will not turn out in the numbers because barack obama is not running. he got everybody out. he got 12,000 people in newark, new jersey. if they don't come out, governor corzine is in a lot of trouble. that's why he closed a 14% gap ex-made it a dead heat. he seems to have lost momentum. can we talk about new york district 23? steve: absolutely. this is the crazy case where the republican candidate dropped out a couple of days ago and then threw her support behind the democrat. then you've got the fellow who was energized by the tea party movement, doug hoffman who had just been a regular guy, as he described himself. and now yesterday up in the 23rd district of new york, joe biden was stumping on behalf of the challenger. also, hoffman -- also, joe biden yesterday suggested that rush limbaugh had, quote, hand-picked hofman to run. and hoffman yesterday called that notion ridiculous. he said, "i've never spoken to rush limbaugh. i have no idea where he got that information." gretchen: you have to say hat's off to a guy, or gal who decides, hey, i'm just going to get into
